LETTER OF PRESENTATION Kingdom of Atenveldt
Unto Their Royal Majesties Áilgheanán and Amber; Baroness Genevieve de Lironcourt, Aten Principal Herald; Heralds in the Atenveldt College of Heralds; and to All Whom These Presents Come,
Greetings of the New Year from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!
This is the July 2017 Atenveldt Letter of Presentation. Please have commentary to me by 20 July 2017.
Heraldry Hut: The July Heraldry Hut is tentatively scheduled for Friday, 21 July, 7:30 PM.
Please consider the following for the July 2017 Atenveldt Letter of Intent:
Eirný Þrúðadóttir (Twin Moons): NEW NAME
The name is Old Norse and is documented in The Viking Answer Lady's website, http://vikinganswerlady.com/ONWomensNames.shtml, for the given name: Eirný appears in Landnamabok for Eirný Þiðrandadóttr. Þrúdr was the daughter of the god Thor and the goddess Sif, but this also appears as a human name and in compounds (http://vikinganswerlady.com/ONWomensNames.shtml#thorn). The rather out-of-the-ordinary matronymic formation is seen atmhttp://vikinganswerlady.com/ONNames.shtml#general_info. The client desires a female name and will not accept Major changes to the name. She will not allow the registration of a holding name.
Litli Knartr (Twin Moons): NEW NAME, NEW DEVICE and NEW BADGE
(device) Sable, a rhinoceros head erased, a bordure Or.
(badge) Sable, an unicorn's head erased Or, a bordure argent.
The name is Old Norse, and documentation comes from Nordiskt runnamnslexicon, Lena Peterson. Litli is a masculine name, p. 160, dated c. 1050-1050 AD. The Old West Norse form would be Lítli. Knartr, found as Gunnar knartr, 1329 in Norway, comes from knart, “a small, densely-grown person” (Lind, column 207). The name elements are within 500 years of each other. The client is most interested in in the meaning (his nickname in his local group is “Tiny”) and culture/language of the name. He wishes it to be authentic for Old Norse.
The device was blazoned as cabossed; this is incorrect, as the beast appears in profile to dexter, the default orientation for most creatures' heads.
Melonia Marie Popoff (Barony of Atenveldt): NEW NAME and DEVICE
Vert, a catamount rampant gardant argent, enflamed complete proper, a bordure ermine.
is found as an feminine English given name, under Melonia Langbridge,
christening date 16 Nov 1579 in Burlescombe, Devon, England (Batch
However, her submitted name, aside from this slight variation in her
given name, is identical to her legal name, Meloney
This may run afoul of using one's legal name as one's SCA name.
The submission was made on obsolete forms, which have been banned since February (Estrella-time) 2017. They will be returned.
William of Grimsby (Tir Ysgithr): NEW NAME and DEVICE
Per pale gules and azure, a badger's head cabossed Or marked sable.
name is English. William is a masculine given name, under William
Abbot, christening date 18 Oct 1573 in St. Thomas, Newport,
Hasmpshire, England (Batch C16659-1,
Grimsby is found under Catherine Grimsby, christening date 12 Oct
1567, Horkstow, Lincoln, England (Batch, C02927-3,
Grimsby, England, is a town and seasport in Lincolnshire,
It is situated on the south side of the River
estuary, 6 miles from the North
The following submissions appear in the June 2017 Atenveldt Letter of Intent:
Atenveldt, Kingdom of: NEW TRANSFER OF BADGE
Gyronny azure and gules, a dexter hand couped apaumy Or.
The name was registered March 2017.
The previous submission, Or, a dunghill cock rising contourny vert maintaining a spear bendwise sinister argent hafted sable, a bordure raguly sable., was returned for contrast issues. a'According to the precedent set in August 2015 which allows maintained charges to count towards difference, they need to be identifiable and are no longer exempt from the usual requirements for good contrast. As the identifying portion of the spear is argent on an Or field, there is not sufficient contrast for the identifiability to be maintained.” Making the blade gules solves the problem.
Mary Margaret of Derby: NEW TRANSFER OF DEVICE
Azure, a domestic cat passant to sinister Or.
Dawn Johnson, daughter and estate executor of Mary Margaret of Derby (Mary Johnson) transfers to the Barony of Sundragon in the Kingdom of Atenveldt Mary Margaret's device. Necessary signed paperwork is forwarded to Laurel.
Odette Steingrim (Sundragon): NAME RESUBMISSION from Laurel, November 2014
The original submission, as seen above, was returned for the following reasons: “This name was pended on the June 2014 Letter of Acceptances and Returns in order to allow the submitter to provide the correct attestation of legal relationship with Eirik Ising Steingrim. Written proof of the relationship was not provided, so we are unable to grandfather the byname Steingrim to the submitter. This name combines a French given name and Norwegian byname. This is not an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA. Therefore, we are unable to register this name and must return it.”
Eirik has supplied a Letter of Permission for Odette to use part of his SCA registered name Steingrim; he is her legal step-father. Odette is demonstrated as a French given name found in a tax archive of 14-17th century French record, "Late Period French Feminine Names," Aryenhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/french/latefrench.html).
Otto Blauschild: NEW TRANSFER OF DEVICE

may not mix ordinaries
